Exclude files from being cached

This policy enables administrators to exclude certain file types from being made available offline.

You need to specify file extensions of the file types that should be excluded. A user will then be unable to create a file of this type in the folders that have been made available offline.

Supported on: At least Windows 7

Enter semi-colon separated file extensions that you want to be excluded from being made available offline by Offline Files.

Extensions must be preceded by an asterisk and period. "e.g. *.dbf;*.jpg"
